Alfred Tea is a small tea shop located in Melrose Place in LA, and what makes it so special is that this tiny nook hidden away in a street of other shops and cafes is- you guessed it- INSTA famous. And how can it not be so popular amongst vloggers, bloggers, and Instagrammers? It’s shiny pink walls, stylish interior design, and super picture worthy drinks made it a definite must-go on my bucket list this trip.
I ordered a match boba, which was a total of $5.50. The drinks are pretty pricey, so if I was a local I would definitely not be getting my daily drink fix from there. But the price of one drink is, in my opinion, definitely worth the picture ops. The barista wasn’t that friendly though, and she seemed kind of exasperated with me vlogging and taking photos. But really. You work in a pink insta famous tea store. Get used to it.
I’ve heard people say that the drinks aren’t that good and the entire thing is really just an Instagram op, but the matcha boba I ordered was actually super good. A little sweet for my liking, but then I’m weird about this kind of stuff.
If you’re in the LA area, be sure to stop by Alfred Tea on Melrose Place! It’s definitely worth it.
Lots of love,
